Design Wall Monday, May 10

Isn't this a great little bin of 2x2 and 2x4.5 inch pieces? I have been cutting like crazy-doing a little every day until I have enough pieces to make Carolina Chain! All these pieces are out of my scrap bin...that monster I showed a few posts ago. Carolina Chain is a pattern from Bonnie Hunter found in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker magazine. Fun little pattern, and the blocks are fast and easy. I made 36 of them yesterday afternoon after coming home from Mother's Day dinner.

Yeah, I know, I need another project...NOT! But this was calling to me and those 2" pieces are hard to resist!!! I had a four day weekend (yahoo!!) and worked on finishing borders on two quilts, worked on my YTRR 5th round, and then started the Carolina Chain. I did not quilt anything!!! Darn it!!! I ment to, as today is Shara and my day off together, and while we watch movies, I like to have a hand project available. Binding a quilt is a good thing to have on hand. I have my hand applique' tulips to do, so I will work on that. There is always so much that I want to accomplish!
Hope everyone had a nice Mom's Day!

God Bless

I love those scrappy blocks...I think I might have to make a quilt of those!

I like how your Carolina Chain is turning out! I have 80 of the 165 squares that I need to make.

Great start to the project and I love that each block is sometimes scrappy as well as the overall effect :)
